Travel Notes



Leningrad Station, Russia's oldest train station (opened in 1855 as Nikolayevsky, a name that current Russian Railways management would like to see return), has reopened after four years of remodeling.

The station's passenger lounges and ticket booths were overhauled, and a food court and updated baggage storage hall were added.

The renovation cost R3 billion ($90 million), according to Russian Railways.
